Fox has revealed that Empire will return for a sixth season but it appears that Jussie Smollett will not.
Smollett was written out of the final two episodes of season 5 after being accused of faking an attack he claimed happened to him back in January. His future and the show’s future have been in question ever since and cast members such as Taraji P. Henson have vouched for Jussie’s return to the show.
However, Fox has issued a statement per E! saying, “By mutual agreement, the studio has negotiated an extension to Jussie Smollett’s option for season six, but at this time there are no plans for the character of Jamal to return to Empire.”
